Cyber Security

Cyber Security is a critical issue that continues to grow in importance with every data breach that occurs. Digital defenses are constantly being probed in virtually every industry, including aviation. The growing risks come from the use of new technologies and new devices such as in-flight Wi-Fi networks or cutting edge air-to-ground (ATG) communication devices.

EASA is working on ensuring a high and equal level of protection in the entire EU aviation system through a coming regulation of cyber security (See the Notice of Proposed Amendment)
